Aaron Rodgers is the reigning NFL MVP and one of the best to ever play the game.

He’s the first player in Green Bay Packers history to make the initial 53-man roster for 17 years in a row. A generational talent and set for perhaps a “last dance” in Green Bay.

Entering his age-38 season, Rodgers is still one of, if not the best quarterback in the NFL.

Ahead of the 2021 season, FanSided’s Matt Verderame has put together his first NFL QB power rankings of the year. Leading the way is the Packers‘ future Hall-of-Famer.

Verderame rightly notes that there are some question marks over the Packers’ offensive line following Corey Linsley’s departure and David Bakhtiari set to miss at least six games. Two rookies could start along the offensive line.

However, he adds that with the firepower surrounding Rodgers, including All-Pro wide receiver Davante Adams, this offense has the talent “for Rodgers and the Packers to roll once more”.

Rodgers, he threw 48 touchdown passes with only five interceptions last season, is coming off arguably the best year of his career. He will again be one of the frontrunners for the NFL MVP award, along with Kansas City Chiefs superstar Patrick Mahomes, seven-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady, and Josh Allen of the Buffalo Bills. They make up the top four in the QB power rankings.

Even by Aaron Rodgers’ incredible standards, this could be his greatest season yet.

Rodgers always seems to save his best football for when he’s got a point to prove. Having been under the spotlight all offseason with his future uncertain, he’ll want to show the world, and the Packers, why he’s still one of the best in the NFL.

On the field, he’s entering year three in Matt LaFleur’s system and also has a strengthened receiving corps with the return of Randall Cobb and addition of Amari Rodgers.

Aaron Rodgers had a career year in 2020. Top of the FanSided QB power rankings, can he reach an even higher level this season?
